Junting Huang (China)

Life After Ertegun House

I began pursuing a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at Cornell University, where I became interested in sound and new media. My dissertation project examines the “noise” in contemporary Chinese literature and new media; by considering “noise” as an unstructured, extraneous, and erroneous force that indexes the evolving social relations, it examines how the Chinese noise scene in the past two decades has developed into a movement in response to the North American and French concretism (concrete art, concrete poetry, and musique concrète).

I am also the Assistant Curator at the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media. I work as an archivist on the Wen Pulin Archive of Chinese Avant-Garde Art and the Yao Jui-Chung Archive of Contemporary Taiwanese Art collections.
